    One Step Closer to Lackawanna County Fair

    SCRANTON — Lackawanna County has a lot of things, but it has never had a county fair. That is a fact that has bothered some people in the county commissioners’ office, so the commissioners have formed a committee that may eventually form a fair. As far as anyone can tell, in its nearly 140-year history, Lackawanna County has not had its own fair. That committee will spend the next year putting together the logistics of a fair that committee members […]

    Pope to Consider Women Deacons

    SCRANTON — Pope Francis may be considering letting women have more leadership roles in the Roman Catholic Church. He said he wants a commission to study whether women should be allowed to become deacons, a step below a priest. Deacons can perform many of the same duties as priests, including giving communion. Pope Francis has proven to be an unconventional leader of the Catholic Church. Though he hasn’t actually changed any church doctrine, his off-the-cuff statements show a shift. Officials in […]

Starting Monday, crews will also start to lower Route 107 under the bridge to allow taller trucks to […]

    LCCC to Anchor Mall at Steamtown

    SCRANTON — The newest tenant in The Mall At Steamtown will be a community college. Luzerne County Community College will open a campus inside the mall in downtown Scranton this summer. It’s an unconventional anchor for the rebounding mall, but current tenants think it will help the mall grow. There was a crowd on the second floor of the empty BonTon anchor store where Luzerne County Community College announced an accomplished long-term goal: a new campus in Lackawanna County. LCCC’s […]

    Holocaust Survivors Share Stories in Scranton

Soon, signs will be hung at parks telling folks that cigarettes and other tobacco products are banned. Police will enforce the new rule, and anyone caught with tobacco could be fined $25.
